Artist Barry R. Jones’ work will be featured in his solo exhibition “Lesson 2,” which opens Monday, May 16, and runs through Friday, June 24, in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery at Coastal Carolina University. A lecture with the artist will take place on Thursday, April 14, at 2 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Jones’ work is about ethics and it asks the oldest of questions: what does it mean to live a good life? What is our responsibility to each other, to our families, to those with disabilities, to the past? In the face of tragedy how do we reaffirm that life is good?
Jones received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of South Carolina and currently serves as professor of art and chair of the Department of Art and Design at
Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tenn. For more information about the artist and to view a preview of his work, visit his website www.barryrjones.com.
